I'll definitely commit to finishing it this week.

But: how is there a compatibility problem? Your p=PEG parameter is
optional, so I don't think there's any compatibility issue here: we
could easily ship what I just committed in 1.6, then add an optional
p=PEG in 1.7. I guess it might end up confusing users down the line
("does this server support p= or not?") Maybe that's what you mean?
I guess I'm sort of operating under the idea that the query string may
very well expand over time, adding things even beyond pegrev.

But I agree we should add pegrev in 1.6, not 1.7.
